HOW BEING A PART OF GW GYMNASTICS WILL EFFECT YOUR FUTURE SUCCESS: "Being a part of the GW gymnastics team has helped me prepare for the many endeavors I will encounter in my future. I have learned to balance many different aspects of my life at the same time. Not only has it taught me time management, but I have learned that nothing is a substitute for hard work. Being a part of a winning team has taught me that all I need in order to accomplish anything is dedication, discipline and perseverance. These valuable lessons will carry me far into the future and help me overcome any obstacles."
